Going ahead with coffee morning thanks for your support

Hi All

I joined the forum at the start of February as I felt so alone and issolated not being able to speak to other carers.

I currently care for my 12 year Son who has CP and my 59yr old mum who suffered a mental breakdown.

I asked you all what you thought about my idea of trying to start a coffee morning for carers in my own area. We live out in the countryside so things can be harder to get to or join.

After some of you kindly responded to my post I have taken the bull my the horns and have arranged for the first coffee morning for Saturday 21st March. Just an informal get together for a cuppa and chat.

I know there are at least 16 families in the area who look after their children with special needs and probably a further 10 families who care for other members of their families.

Wish me luck and hopefully I can encourage them to join the forum for on line support. Image

Love and God Bless x

Hope you have a good turnout and that the coffee morning is a huge success, leading to continuing mutual support in your area. It could be just what a lot of people have been wishing for so well done for taking the bull by the horns. Best wishes xx
